sometimes paradise is pink…

playa pink

It’s always amazing to me the many different colors that Playa contains. Blues, purples, reds, oranges, and the other day…pink. Hmmmm…deep sigh..

This gorgeous photo is courtesy of my friend D.V. Thanks D.V.!! Great shot…wish I was there 🙂

sometimes paradise is sunny…

playa sunny

Sometimes after a storm, paradise is sunny. Sometimes after the full moon, the sun comes out in paradise.

What a beautiful, sunny, bright morning in Playa del Carmen.!! My friend P., the photographer, took this photo the other day. Glorious 🙂

Can you believe P. takes all these photos on her phone.?!? She does such a fabulous job, I think I (and many likes on her Facebook page) have convinced her to buy a camera.!! Which means more wonderful photos of Playa are in our future.!!

Feliz miercoles.!! Happy Wednesday.!! I hope everyone had a spectacular weekend.!! Here in the states, it was July 4th, so it was a pretty exciting weekend.! One of my friends just got back from Papa New Guinea. Since she knows I’m a coffee fiend, she brought me back some coffee from there.!! I can’t wait to try it 🙂 I also saw my lovely friend who moved to Puerto Rico recently. She was in town newly engaged and showing off her ring and fiancé or novio.!! jajaja… We spent a lovely day with tacos, elotes, and Corona.! Did I mention her novio is Mexican.! It was great to see her and celebrate.

I also got to see fireworks…everywhere actually.!! I saw them while I was visiting with my engaged friend. And then on the drive home, I saw fireworks along the expressway pretty much as I drove by every township. It was pretty cool 🙂 Sorry I didn’t get any photos. On another note, my dad is doing a little better. I stopped by to see him too. I can’t wait until we can hang out and eat some chicken wings.!!

And as for the weather…well…it feels like Dublin in July. Cold and rainy. Not summer Chicago weather at all. This week’s Corona commercial is a letter from the winter season to summer. But really it may as well be a letter from the city of Chicago to summer reminding it of all the reasons we LOVE summer.!! I’ll have more pretty pictures of Playa tomorrow. Until then, enjoy.! Y salud.!!

It was rainy last week in Playa del Carmen. And the storms came out in full force. Another one of my favorite beach bars – Canibal Royal – snapped this shot of the storm coming in. Just gorgeous.!!

See you for Corona tomorrow.!!

sometimes paradise has a full moon…

There was a beautiful full moon last night. The picture above is from one of my favorite beach bars in Playa del Carmen – Zenzi Beach Bar.!! I didn’t get a chance to see the full moon here in Chicago last night as it was covered by the clouds. And then I went to sleep…too tired to say “hola” to the moon 🙂

I also missed the beautiful meeting of Venus and Jupiter in the sky. Hopefully, tonight will be less cloudy and I will be able to see the conjunction. If not, the two planets will meet up again late August.! So I will have to be on the lookout then too. The picture below of the two plants converging is from June 28th, 2015 over Los Angeles. Breathtaking…

Feliz miercoles.!! Happy Wednesday.!! I hope everyone is enjoying their week. Mine is a little crazy busy as it’s a short work week here in the States. This weekend is the July 4th holiday.!! Not much to report this week. No big news…which is actually nice. The weather in Chicago has been kinda cool and rainy. I think Mother Nature thinks it’s still spring.! jajaja.. But it’s great sleeping weather, so no complaints here 🙂

This week’s Corona commercial features the mandatory summer necessity – the cooler. You need it for the beach, picnics, friend’s bar-be-ques, and most definitely for July 4th bashes.!! I hope everyone has a great week.! I’ll see you in a few days with a full moon photo.!! Until then, enjoy.! Y salud.!!
